hey @audreywatters - you appear to be on pg.84 of Walkaway https://arstechnica.com/the-multiverse/2017/04/cory-doctorows-walkaway-hardware-hackers-face-the-climate-apocalypse/ ".. she called him on every crumb of bullshit, found crashed projects where gamification had run wild, so financialized that every incentive distorted into titanic frauds that literally left structures in ruins, rotten to the mortar. They were existence proof of the terribleness of his cherished ideas. She pointed out that getting humans to 'do the right thing' by incentivizing them to vanquish one another was stupid.
